After the initial practice period I quickly learned to love the bliss of the new slow life. I was one of the lucky ones still able to work and even see colleagues (albeit from distance) but was able to plan my own work hours and minimise risks. Home life became a shelter and a refuge - a peaceful, quiet retreat from the new harsh realities of the outside world. I've never loved home as much I do now!
Appreciating the garden nature
Being stuck working from home isn't all bad. I'm lucky enough to have a garden and so have been taking photos every work day to put on facebook. It's hard to keep the ideas going without duplicates, but it's meant I've had to look harder which in turn has brought a renewed appreciation of the small things. I also have a better understanding of the natural order and cycle of the garden.
The online feedback has been positive too, with some looking forward to the next photo snap.
